Our bereavement services are available for families of our patients, to help them cope with their feelings of grief and loss.  These services include face to face counselling with qualified counsellors or for those who just need to talk we run weekly bereavement groups at our Hospice Centre where families can share their experiences and support one another.  We know groups don’t suit everyone and so if you need somebody to listen we have a team of trained volunteers who are at the end of the phone.

If you don’t want or need regular support, come along to our family coffee mornings.  If there’s an anniversary this month, or you’re having a bad day you can call into our centre, have a cuppa and find the support you need to get through the day.
